Post subject:  RPG Rapora Wars

Its been getting some attention now...again. The Rapora seem to pop up every once in a while. We had something of a Rapora Wars thread going but because of lack of interest or knowledge It never really took off. Should we have a go ahead on this RPG thread and organize it. I always throught that part of the reason Rapora Wars didn't take off was lack of knowledge.

If you're wondering what they are check out two threads in General Discussion. One the ST vs SW fan fiction, and the Rapora who? threads. I think it would make a fun RPG considering the sheer umber of sides and characters that could be pulled in.

Any comments?

It's definitely a candidate for our next major RP. (And I could get back to my thread-famous Yuuzhan Vong persona), and though you have offered that encylopedia entry (Thanks, btw), I think we would need more info on them if we wanted to have them in the spotlight of a big war.

Let's hear what the others have to say about it.

Approx 10 years after the end of the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion, the galaxy gets embroiled in another major war, starting in the unknown regions against an alien force using race called the Rapora. The Rapora venerate, even worship dark jedi, and have poured all of their resources into technological development.

Craft List:

Karlur class Cruiser:

The primary starship of the Rapora Alliance the Karlur class cruiser is one of the most formidable vessels ever encountered. One vessel of its type is capable of engaging an entire New Republic/GFFA Task Force (1 Calamari Cruiser, 1 Nebulon B Frigate, 4 Transports or light Support Craft, 1 Light Calamari Cruiser, Bulk Cruiser, or Assault Frigate, and 2-3 Corellian Gunships or Corvettes)

It's 18 batteries of dedicated ant-starfighter weaponary make it capable of defending itself against small formations of starfighters. A pair of Superheavy Plasma Cannons are its primary armament, each one capable of penetrating a planetary shield with just a few shots. Over four dozen medium sized plasma cannons, are scattered across the hull, each one having enough firepower to equal an entire battery of turbolasers. Eight Heavy Plasma Cannons are mounted in arrays at the prow and at the ends of the manuevering vanes and are directed straight forward.

A pair of enormous ion drives propel the craft which is even equipped with a cloaking device. It measures approximently 1.4 Kilometers in length and approximently 0.8 Kilometers in width. Its Hanger bay can carry four squadrons of Lakra class Claw fighters. These fighters are more then a match for most GFFA fighters.

Lakra class fighter

Fast and manueverable the Lakra class fighter has a top speed of around 150 MGLTs. Its almost as manueverable as a TIE Defender and equipped with a pair of plasma cannons. The craft also carries a lone Plasma bomb which is equipped with a shield disruptor and energy sheath making it capable of penetrating the shields and hull of a target before detonating. Two well targeted shots with the bombs are capable of destroying a Mon Calamari Cruiser and a volley of twelve can cause horrific damage to a Super Star Destroyer. Fortunately the bombs are slow enough to be targeted by weapons fire and destroyed long before impact. The craft is equipped with shields, but they are insufficient protection against most laser blasts. The craft relies much more on speed and manueverability to get itself out of danger.

I'm up for anything and i'd like to be in on the Rapora wars thread. My character is usually a reb pilot or a merc/assasin so could someone fill me in first on any info i'll need to know to understand the plot and second what sort of character and posts you want, i.e are we going to jump straight into battle or do you just want us to work on charcterisation. Also, what time frame are we looking at? if your posting as THE jacen solo, obviously after the battle of yavin, but a general idea would be good.

The original Rapora Wars thread (Rapora Wars Start) has been abandoned, now we're using the Rapora Wars (Introductory RPG) to jumpstart the Rapora Wars.
